Paper Abstract

The field of soft x-ray laser research is at a point between the first demonstrations of x-ray amplification and the onset and widespread application of modest—sized x-ray lasers. The past several years have seen great strides in x-ray amplifier performance as well as the demonstration of proof—of—principle x-ray laser applications. In the near term, the challenge for the x-ray laser community will be to develop compact x-ray lasers and to carry out an applications experiment of crucial importance to an identifiable community of interested users. Achieving these goals will require furthering our understanding of basic amplifier physics and increasing our technological capabilities with x-ray lasers. In this paper, we summarize the results obtained to date in these areas, with emphasis on the most recent developments.
